MATERIALS THAT DON’T HURT AND WON’T WASTE
We always select materials that are responsibly sourced. We also only source materials that can either be biodegraded, recycled to make new shoes, or upcycled into materials for new projects.
Creates a soft-touch feel. Antimicrobial (go sockless!)
We’ve coated our soft touch mesh sock liner with aloe vera - a natural and sustainable way to combat bacteria and keep your sneakers fresh!
NATURAL & RECYCLED RUBBER
Pure, plant-based, and sustainable. Stronger & more elastic than synthetics.
We worked closely with a net zero emissions natural rubber supplier to develop a clean and abrasion resistant outsole. For our insole we have partnered with a recycled rubber supplier to have you standing on a yoga mat.
Adds breathability & cushioned comfort for a more secure fit.
We worked with a sustainable mattress company to develop a breathable castor bean oil based foam for footwear.
Turned into leather-like uppers, mesh liners + next generation laces.
We’ve worked across our supply chain with recycled plastics - that can then be used again. Our bio-leather is made from recycled plastic bottles and is coated with a bio based resin made from corn waste.
PALM LEAF FIBERS
A solid foundation, with less water consumption or chemicals.
We use locally sourced palm leaf fibers from food waste in Brazil to replace many of the plastic component parts commonly found in footwear.
Increases flexibility and enhances comfort. How sweet it is!
We use locally sourced sugar cane fibers from food waste in Brazil to replace many of the plastic component parts commonly found in footwear.
A renewable source of stability and support.
We use locally sourced coconut husk fibers from food waste in Brazil to replace many of the plastic component parts commonly found in footwear.
For a water-resistant & oops-proof upper. Stains don’t stick!
Durability is the first step to sustainability. We’ve coated our shoes with a natural quartz barrier to make them stain and water resistant. Keep your white shoes white longer!
